, and we are your appointees and we want to thank you for having us here. we will begin by expressing our appreciation to all of those who help us in our work on behalf of the over 15,000 english language learners in our district, and we did provide you with some written data which i will be loosely following in my beginning here. we're very grateful to our english language students and our representatives who continue to attend our bcc meetings and they voice their concerns to us and we're able to bring these issues forward, and to garner attention to them, and to make remedies. we're thankful for our translators who attend every meeting that we have, both spanish and can tonenies and some of the things that we were able to -- [inaudible] strict and with the help of our -- kristina wong and jennifer fong, the two people we work most closely with. we have a english learner program guide and we didn't have this before and it's also translated into english -- into spanish and conton easy and serves as a guide to our english learner family who is find coming to epc and to the district ver
.members --zip car; this legislation will allow us to serve currently underserved communities by going into otherwise prohibited areas.all, thank you. >>: thank you very much. any additional public comment? go ahead.hill neighbors. i have signed the student perhaps i didn't understand the point you just made. personally i support car sharing in general. i would be concerned if they were adding spaces to residential buildings that would not be there if it were not for car sharing. car sharing can be put into commercial buildings and hotels in our district and i mentioned thishill neighbors are opposing, and the developer is offering amenities that would support his conditional use, eliminating a senior housing that we are supporting, an extra car share units. i am bringing that up because maybe what you said it cannot be used in a conditional use but at any rate they're trying to do that. i hope that he could not possiblyback, and offer, which he is trying to do to get his conditional approval. >>: any other comments?douglas -- i would like to speak in opposition to this.jurisdiction so

for the program,. [applause] >> so we're really happy that you're giving us time to talk about mentoring for success, quite a movement that is happening right now in mentoring and we appreciate the recognition of national mentoring month. we did give you materials to keep to the time limit and it does have some snapshot of some information with pretty pictures and graphs and stuff so you should check it out, and just so we're all on the same page. the formal definition of mentoring is a structured and purposeful relationship between a caring adult and a young person so that's what we're talking about here and we know one thing is if students don't feel connected it's harder for them to succeed and we know that caring adults build assets for our youth. you simply can't succeed if you're not connected. it's human nature. that's why mentoring for success is fostering those relationships in our district. no two relationships look the same so we have a couple of mentors here and a student that will share about their experience in a bit so yeah. >> under the umbrella of student community s

book. we are facing that everyday. another thing they use the street as a bathroom, alley, all over. it's very hard for us to accept daily. i have been there for the last 32 years and we survive, but still we facing a lot of problem with the pan handler. for example there are two ladies on the street and between mission and sixth and they grab customers and search them and take the bag and run away. i call the cop. after 45 minutes they show up. this person is mentally sick but you have to do something. you have to take her out of the street. we are taxpayer. we need to survive on our business so we need your help. i hope by the time the substation is to be open i heard the latest the ends of this month and that is good month. i don't know about the chief. i hope that and the alley -- jessie and sixth. it's really bad. we ask the city to do more steam clean the streets. we ask them to clean the guys out of the alley. we appreciate everything to keep up in life. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. next speaker. >> well, they're talking about the problems
was put out in 2012 and it's been a while and about san francisco arrest stats i wanted us as a commission to hear the information and provide feedback as we have done tonight. to my understanding they held a long hearing on this issue and the chief was in attendance. >> it was a joint hearing with the police commission. >> there was a specific meeting about this specific report that was last year. human rights commission had a meeting on the human impact of drugs. >> and i was there. >> you were there, yes. >> because that is happening and another commission and affects our work that's i didn't wanted us to look at this report and give the chief a chance to respond and make the points you have made and thank you for that and i think the broader context as this relates -- you probably might have heard about this and i want to under score it. there is a professor michelle alexander and aclu attorney and "new jim crow" book and talked about the issues as it relates to drug issues and how that's a civil rights concern and that book has taken off and inspired a lot of people and lead to the
the man choirian okay was used in this champ better because it was softer and they could carve it better. and it reflects what the city's about. it's more about the finer details rear than the rough objectives that you are focusing on i see you folksing on bike theft and don't worry about the equestrian horse theft stolen right from under the city and not one supervisor did anything about it. that is theft of a magsive scale and for the president of this board of supervisors to get up and say that this type of activity is going to be transferred to the state and to the rest of the united states well, we are in for a lot of big trouble. because my culture just doesn't disappear. it doesn't disappear from san francisco it doesn't disappear from california it doesn't disappear from the united states you folks may disappear but my culture doesn't. thank you. >>. >> thank you next speaker? >>> my name is eugene gordon jr. and we dress for democratic party leadership for over two centuries over constitutional law gave states right so they would not be confused with federal law and in
for us. we can't count on the severely backlogged lottery and if our -- we could go into foreclosure. because our home value is depressed we would lose our nest egg. i have no idea what we are going to do. when i bought my place the city estimated the lottery would take five years. today that estimate is roughly 20 years. my family is suffering. i represent a voice in san francisco that needs to be heard. t.i.c. owners are not the evil people that the tenants union paints us to be. i'm not a million ai. i am not a millionaire. we are middle class families that want to stay in the city. please help us do that in passing this one time bypass. if we lose everything we will have to start again and it won't be and can't be in san francisco. thank you. >> chair wiener: thank you. again, i'll remind -- i know that there are passionses on both sides. i remind people to refrain from applauding, booing, et cetera. next speaker. >> i'd like to reiterate everything my wife just said. we both love living in the city of san francisco. it's the best place i've ever lived. and we'd like to stay here
to the tjpa. so in summary, the sfpuc is offering us an ongoing service rate that would be 10% lower than pg&e's. an initial cost of connection that is again roughly $650,000 less than pg&e's. and has a comparable level of reliability of service. and so the recommendation is that the board authorize staff to negotiate an agreement with puc. >> thank you. actually i did have a quick question. i wasn't clear from the summary, the $661,000 of the itcc, are we going to discount that amount to the puc? because in the summary it said a minus and i wasn't sure we would offer that credit to the puc, since we would not have to pay it to pg&e. >> the puc has said is that they would limit the cost to the tjpa to the amount that it would cost them to establish pg&e network grid service, less the amount of that fee. so that is a further decrease in the initial cost investment to the tjpa for the amount of that fee, which at the time of the pg&e proposal was 22% of the costs. >> thank you. director metcalf? >> why is the sf puc proposing to subsidize the installation by 3. 5 million dollars? >> the
that the tep staff use other appropriate tools on the church street project including transit preferential significants and recommends that the agency take into account all modes flowing through the dubois/church intersection whether or not through signage or signals. the next recommendation, cac recommends that the agency report back on the possibility of selecting a low-income community as a destination for a second run of the 76x marin headlands express. the next motion has to do with the tep again. cac recommends that a higher ridership line be chosen for the next tep pilot project. this next motion those do with sidewalk parking and infringement by parked cars on the sidewalk. the mta cac recommends that sidewalk parking laws be enforced not just against cars that leave less than 4' of travel room for pedestrians, but for any car being more than 1' into the sidewalk. the next long motion concerns operator training. cac recommends that the agency expand its operator training capacity in order to meet the long-term operator needs of the agency. even to the understood short-term detrime
to that immediately because they are our eyes and ears out in the frunt so we're appreciate that. i'm going to ask us to work even closer together because you know the work in front us is so monumental that we can't let the status quo to pull us away from where we go and for the commissioners we had a preliminary review of the data that was referenced here. we will do a more comprehensive report on the data and we will make sure it's clean and we will have a public discussion with what the data says and again thank you. >> thank you very much. >> i wanted to thank you again on behalf of the board and all the great questions that you ask so there you go. the superintendent said they might pretend they complain about you in private but they're grateful for the work that you do thank you. >> we really appreciate the fact that we're working more closely and as we did say we are really short and representatives in the bcc. unfortunately of the five meetings we had we had quorum for three so that really impacts the work that we do so we want to reiterate if you can please make sure to communicate with y
to share this moment with us. it's the start of something really, really big and it's nice for you all to be here in this very cold day to share this warm moment with us, a day that we will always remember. thank you very, very much. and we're going to have a little photo op right here. (applause) >> we have a key to present. ... >> [sound of gavel] good afternoon welcome to the san francisco board of supervisors meeting of the tuesday january 29, 2013 of the board of supervisors for the city and county of san francisco home of the superbowl heading san francisco 49ers. madame clerk please call the role. >>> supervisor avalos, avalos present. breed present. supervisor campus poes present. president chiu, chiu present. chu present, supervisor cohen, yes, i'm here. >> cohen present. supervisor farrell. farrell present. kim present. supervisor mar, mar present. supervisor wiener, wiener present. and supervisor yee.y present. mr. president all members are present. >> thank you could you please join us in the problem of allegiance. [pledge of allegiance] i pledge allegianc
to the first meeting. with the presidential election behind us it is fair to see that we will see more of a focus on transportation. i think it is also fair to say that there continues to be perhaps little appetite for tackling some of the core issues in terms of the insolvency of the federal highway trust fund and transportation funding nationally and of course that impact what happens at the local level. we certainly will continue to be diligent in watching what happens in washington dc. i know that a number of us this morning had a reception with leader pelosi who has been very helpful in the past and securing funding for transportation here in the city and county of san francisco. i also want to talk about the trend happening locally in terms of revenue measures such as the sales tax and vehicle registration fee that are administered by the authority. one of the things that is important as we move forward is to always look for the most cost-effective ways of doing the work. one of the things that i hope you continue to do is to focus on enhancing coordination among the various cit
: thank you. thank you. >> ted, san francisco tenants union. i want to remind us all this is an extremely difficult market for renters right now where the new dotscom boom arging well over 1230 a month, evictions have been tripling and it's a tough time for renters. the two most important laws protecting renters are the condo conversion law and the rent control law. and it will repeal units from rent control and it will convert -- it's exactly over 2,000 units immediately to condos. that's a significant number off of rent control into condos. it's sending a strong message to the real estate speculators that san francisco no longer cares about regulating condo conversion and it's going to be like the wild west and we're going to have an epidemic of evictions in the upcoming months and upcoming years. that said, i think it's true that the condo conversion process is broken. there's t.i.c.s that are unregulated, unlimited, there's thousands of them during the peak years. we need to get them regulated and limited, we need to make sure we're not allowing unlimited conversions. i think the supe
budget for all of us." it's convening groups include well-known groups like the western center on law and poverty, health access, the california partnership, and the california immigrant policy center. the mantra is "restore, rebuild and reinvest." so this advocacy will be taken up by various groups including the california alliance of retired americans. there are four polices that are coming from this california budget for all of us. four polices for the coming california budget cycle. one, restore the social safety net cuts being implemented now during this 2012-2013 fiscal year. second, a moratorium on cuts to vital programs for vulnerable californians in the coming year. that includes lots of us. third, continue to work for revenue solutions to close budget gaps in future budgets. fourth, corporations must pay their fair share, too. i will give a copy of this to miss mcspadden, so she can follow-up. i want you folks to be away there are lobby days set for later in may for the governor's revised budget, both for seniors and also for those with disabilities. i encourage you to monit
request. so we're looking at sun setting our funding in 2015. and it will take us through 2015, almost all the way through that year to complete the construction of all of our projects. these funding requests are separate from curb ramp and sidewalk ada transition plan funding projects. all right? so these are the architectural buildings. and that is the end of my report. >> thank you, jp. is there any public comment or comment on the bridge line for any of these reports? okay then we'll move on to agenda item no. 11. >> is there any comment on the bridge line? >> no. okay. we'll move on to agenda item no. 11, public comments, items not on today's agenda, but within the jurisdiction of the mdc. jerry grace. >> you did it again, shame on you, chip. i waited for you to call me on the number before that,- john's report so i could ask the question. no. 11, but john, this is the question that i wanted to ask you. i wonder -- i had never known this before, but i wonder about this, too. i wonder are you working with -- excuse me -- uc -- i -- i'm thinking about the other hospital
have been up in the 20s. can you just explain why that volatility and remind us why we went from the 20s down to 8. >> ? >> because we were initially receiving funds through matt, we had a lot of dbe participation on your contracts. we weren't supposed to take that into consideration when we first established our program, because we didn't have a previous dbe program. we couldn't take previous history into consideration. so we did have a very low goal just based on availability numbers in the database. i think it was 4% that first year and of course your participation was much higher. the goal did come down in the years where we were anticipating and did award the design contract, because that was such a large contract. and such a large percentage of the anticipated contracting activity. and wasn't anticipated and, in fact didn't have dbe participation advisory on that contract. so we saw the goal come down a little bit. now that we're into largely construction contracts the goal is a little bit higher and what we are seeing is that counting sbe participation, sbe participation does
cautiously and utilize the principle to guide us. the the city needs to intervene and bridge the gap between haves and have-nots. i would invite everybody to listen to the pod cast, how much can san francisco take. i just think that living in san francisco has been a really interesting experience, trying to find roommates on craig's list is chaotic. i asked if we could have a cleaning schedule, moved to the tenderloin, there was a serial rapist roaming around and then moved to oakland because i honestly can't afford rent in san francisco. ironically i worked two jobs and i work six days a week and am pretty exhausted. and i don't think that it's unfortunate that these two groups are pitted against each other but i do think that there's a solution and we have to find that. thanks. >> chair wiener: thank you very much. next speaker. >> my name is -- [speaking foreign language] >> translator: there are 15 of us in the family. this time i would like the supervisors to pass the t.i.c. proposal. to allow the t.i.c. people to buy an affordable house. so that we can have good and more perfect life i
, and potentially additional real estate speculation that could lead us right back to an identical debate within a short period of time and that's fundamentally an issue that i have with this particular proposal. and i would love an initial i guess comment on that, and certainly if there are suggestions from the public on this but to me that seems to be a fundmental piece that i wish was addressed by the legislation. >> chair wiener: president chiu, that is inherently speculation, nobody knows. to believe one side or another to me is something that we should not be doing. two things that i would articulate. first of all owner occupancy rules dictate there needs to be owner occupancy for a number of years before this is to be eligible for the condo lottery. in most instances it's three years for a certain amount of tenants for larger buildings it gets more complicated. the even potential chance for that to happen is years down the road. second of all what i would articulate is -- and ask any of the t.i.c. owners that speak with us today -- the desirability of t.i.c.s especially because of the fin
for us and i believe all the questions were answered in detail here. this was the follow up to the meeting, the commissioner -- the committee of the whole. >> i believe there were questions posed at that meeting and adequately answered in this memo. >> yes commissioner wynns. >> i'm not certain if this is the time to ask this question. i mean it is related to the question asked at the last meeting and the memo, and that's -- and i don't have them here, but the developments that occurred today. i got a text message or email from deputy superintendent lee. is that in there? we had talked about -- i had talked to the deputy superintendent about including something in the spending plan or in its cover letter or something that would be clear about the -- that we intended to -- a plan that would include spending of the money, the entire amount with the trigger not pulled so i appreciate we've gotten now a memo that says here a process we're going to use, but i don't know, and maybe you have it and i don't because i'm not there, something that makes it clear in the plan that we
like this system would actually help expedite the recovery time? >> right. >> and thereby saving us resources. >> yes. because the communication detection system that we will replace will give the realtime-based information to central control. so they will know exactly to pinpoint where the problem and to act to it quickly. >> respond to it quickly while trains are sitting in the tunneling. it's my long windied way to say we're not just upgrading signs. >> it sounds like it's a system we definitely need. one quick question. how old was the current system right now? >> nearly 30 years old. in fact, because it's so old, there are times there is difficulty getting replacement parts since the old system of communication is old, it will be difficult to communicate with new systems. as we mentioned one of the advantages of this new communication system will be the tie-in for central subway coming online with new communication products will be able to tie directly in as a plug-in tool. this is really an avenue to bring communication to the state-of-the-art for sfmta. >> thank you. >>
know you're undocumented if you don't leave. the reality they shifted from using ellis to using threats and buyouts. we don't know how many buildings are in the lottery right now where that happened, where someone was bought out or threatened. how can we talk about clean buildings unless we do some kind of investigation. the protection in wiener and farrell's legislation for someone living in a t.i.c., we all know the lifetime leases are problematic under costa hawkins, but the other thing is it's very simple for a landlord of a t.i.c. to simply threaten or buy out that tenant and circumvent the lifetime lease. again there are no real protections for tenants. the only real protection for tenants against evictions for t.i.c.s is to not do t.i.c.s, period, end of discussion. let's provide homeowners other ways. we should be building. new construction is how we provide home ownership for middle income people. stop cannibalizing the rental stack. evicting one group of people to provide homes for others is not good policy. we should be together in demanding that this city provide affordable
. when members met with the chief in 2012 he assured us he would include information which we outlined in a letter sent to him on june 8, and to address another question that was presented by commissioner several meetings happened with the chief and staff happened in july and september and after the signing of the ordinance. in short we are disappointed that despite the verbal assurances this report failed to include anymore any useful information regarding the work and this lack of information makes it impossible for the public to have true accountability to know what the police department is doing with regard to this issue. a five minute presentation is not sufficient to that and my colleague will speak on the details of this. thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you members of the commission. thank you for the chance to address you. as tina mentioned i am nadia and with the civil rights committee with the coalition in san and my comments are about the work with the san francisco police department work with the fbi. as many of you may recognize me and hear again the coalition worke
that completely blocks us out with no -- not even local hire, not anything. and what it says here is that the process requires california law regarding the award of construction contracts by the school. well, california law -- there is also the 14th amendment which specifically mentions contracts, over right 209, any state law, so we are pe petitioning the school district -- we have been talking to you for six months. even with the new superintendent here we have been talking to you demanding in a way, but still talking to you because we have other methods we could use. for you all to -- you're the board. you don't want to make the decisions around here. one thing is hard about the board is the fact that you guys -- all of you is city wide. we need to put you under the same thing that the board of supervisors is under, districts. you add four more people to your board. now, just do what they do and you see the difference it makes. i am sure you read in the chronicle about the mountain of people of color that's been helped. i would like a little more time because this was
and solve to take care of us. telephones and lifelines because i couldn't get a hold of my doctor in one of those hotel north beach, they my land line for me and i accidently didn't pay my cell phone bill because i was moving from one hotel to another and so think about it people like me no cell phone no hotel line because the hotel cut it off. >> thank you. for helping to mobilize people too. >>> thank you to getting a handle on the legislation and i want to say there are a lot of focus involved in the study, there were a lot of folks that would have liked to made it here today but they could not for health reasons for mobility reasons and i want to remember folks that, may have been intimidated, didn't speak out. those who felt uncomfortable, you know. we are here for them as well. we have letters of support from different organizations. housing providers, t nbc, the community housing partnership. mercy housing has written us a letter of support as well as the community i'm sorry the counsel of community housing organization. they all have written letters of support, you can
for a lot of us, myself included, it feels like a bit of a waste to paying an extra point and a half to our mortgage every month to the bank. we would much rather give it to the city than give it to the banks, in the form of this affordable housing fee at a time when the city can use it. and so i'm in support of the legislation and i hope you guys will consider it. thanks. >> chair wiener: thank you very much. next speaker. >> hi. my name is -- schubert, first time homeowners. i've been renting many years before that, living in a t.i.c. in a three unit building, together with my wife we moved in, in 2005. we did not evict anybody. we've been playing the lottery since then, a few times -- condo convert, have been able to do, a few things have changed since then, one thing is mortgage situation and market, second we have a three-year-old kid right now and we're in the situation we cannot really move within the city realistically, given all the prices in the market. we cannot refinance. we have tried, we're not able to do so, given the known situations in the market, and we cannot rent out wit
. but the thought the commission should see a product presentation friend of mine us >> how many preparations are there? how many forms are required >> it would be nice to know how many forms would be on the site and i think that would go along way in the presto express how big a job this is and how much this brings together in one place. how many categories of business. people like to think oh, small business owner but it's maybe 55 categories and this may be a complicated one and fin facts but they write articles about this >> great job. >> next item please. commissioners item 8 discussion on proposition e this is a discussion item >> so commissioners we've been fielding questions through our office and other business organs of wanting a review about prop e i thought today would be a good time to go over some basics. if there's any concerns, what's ahead because i'm sure you'll be fielding some questions as well. and while there is a good deal of work happening in the background like the transition of the different payroll tax incentiv incentives. the tax and treasures office is beginni
investments that will lead us right back to an identical debate within a short period of time. this is the first hearing on this important topic. as i said before if i had to vote today i would not vote to support it but i recognize that even if a majority of this committee voted down this proposal, supervisors farrell and wiener could collect two more signatures to bring this next week to the full board without time to see a comprehensive solution. i think both sides have been speaking at each other for quite some time but not necessarily with each other. i'm happy to convene an intensive negotiation process over the next two weeks between representatives of the tenant and t.i.c. communities to see if there it is a better solution to work. to that end i would propose a four week continuance to february 25, and hope over the next couple of weeks we can do that work and on february 25, either we might have some different proposals to consider, or this committee can decide at that time how to move forward. >> chair wiener: thank you president chiu. he has made a motion. is there

curious, on average how many people use the 24-hour construction line? >> how many calls do we get? >> yes. >> usually when we get calls to the line it's a complaint. >> right. >> and happily they have been quite low over the past year. maybe averaging 1-2 a month. you know, sometimes when we move into different phases of construction, the complaints will increase as we make that shift. so we're certainly going to be prepared as excavation moves east and gets closer to millennium in particular. it's just been a handful each month. >> the last data question, how many of people do you have on your look ahead email newsletter ? >> about 1400. >> okay. that is great. i just wanted to get a good sense because you are clearly doing good outreach and i wanted to make sure there was good penetration in the neighborhood for that. thank you. >> thank you and now sarah will report on funding. >> so in 2012 we received a little over $77 million in grant allocations from ac transit, mtc, and, as well as fta. as the executive director mentioned we finalized the purchase and sale agreem
issues. the last thing i would like to speak to is just asking us to address the question of who gets left out of the information loop? i was struck by some of the recent community meetings that were sponsored around the changes that were talked about megan elliot. at both senior sites we had probably 300 people who came to hear about that. and then i'm thinking well who got left out of that and who maybe didn't hear about that? because there is an existing network of senior centers and senior housing where a lot of information gets communicates, but i think sometimes we tend to keep connecting to the same people who already have a connection. and that i think we have to think about who gets left out. that is not to denigrate at all the work of the mayor's office on disability and this council. anyway, thank you very much for your work. i think we have some things to attend to. thank you. >> thank you. next is jerry grace. >> good afternoon everybody. my name is jerry grace and i i alive across the bay in cc county, city of san pablo. the bottom line a lot of people live here in the
